The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 13th and runs through Sunday, May 19th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 7.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team.
I read about this Read-a-Thon on The True Book Addict's Blog and as I like week long reading challenges I decided I had better take part.
I have a busy week ahead of me so I won't set my goal too high.
My goal will be to read four books this week. As usual for this kind of challenge my list of books is more than four so I have a choice.
